|A semi precious stone.|
Red topaz is a type of semi-precious gem. It can be either obtained using the Mining skill from the Shilo Village's gem rock or a random gem rock during the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame. Red topaz can be cut with a chisel by a player with 16 Crafting although there is a chance that the player will accidentally crush it. Successfully cutting a red topaz grants to player 25 Crafting experience, but if they crush the gem they will receive only 6.3 Crafting experience. Red topaz is not used in the creation of jewellery, but can be cut into red topaz bolt tips for use in creating red topaz bolts.
At level 80 Crafting there is roughly a 16-17% chance that the red topaz will be accidentally crushed (in a test with 335 out of a sample of 2000 gems being crushed).
At level 99 Crafting there is roughly a 4.8% chance that the red topaz will be accidentally crushed (in a test with 42 out of a sample of 874 being crushed, would be best to assume 5% on a larger scale).
